Federal Manager's Daily Report

The Office of Government Ethics has posted updates to guidance on conflicts of interest, an area of federal ethics law that carries potential criminal penalties in addition to career implications for violations.

The guidance covers “common conflict of interest issues that arise from various types of financial interests, as well as interests arising from employment and employment-related assets,” OGE said, and has been updated to reflect interpretations issued in recent years as well as the Biden administration’s ethics pledge requirement for senior officials.


Topics with changes include limits on outside income, book deals, and investments in stocks, mutual funds, real estate holding companies or investment trusts, and more:
